How are you?

A seemingly simple question but do you struggle to answer it truthfully?

We've become conditioned to say "I'm fine" or "Everything's okay". Now there's nothing wrong with either of those responses if they're true for you.

We say those words even when we're not fine and when things aren't okay. And I get that sometimes that's because we don't want to share our thoughts and feelings with everyone who asks. After all, it's our right to choose who we share things with.

Who do you share with? 

Who do you tell your fears, worries and concerns to? It might be a friend, family member, partner, or a professional like a coach. Maybe you talk with someone in spirit, pray or write in a journal. 

The important thing is to have someone or some way to honestly express how you feel.

Is it time to talk?

If you've been bottling something up, however small it seems, share it. Life is full of ups and downs, highs and lows, easy times and challenges. We all face them. The key to living well is to share honestly. Find your person, or find the way that best suits you, and be true to yourself.

When you're honest about how you feel, and about what's going on and where you're at, you can make the changes, the course alterations, that you need to make to live well.

If there's someone you know needs to hear this message, please share.
